  • Despite its tooltip saying otherwise, the Reinforced Twine seems to be functionally identical to the Standard Twine (and at twice the cost!). Additionally, the Robust Twine only increases durability despite its tooltip implying some other effect.
  • Grandpa's Guide says the following about Lures: "...grey twine makes the lure last longer, red increases the catch radius, and gold increases your shiny chance." The statements about grey and red twine (meaning Reinforced and Robust) appear to be incorrect, though they align with the items' descriptions.
